This month I thought it would be fun to share a simple neighbor gift idea.  I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to come up with a new twist on a well loved idea.  Giving a jar or a bag of homemade cookie mix is not a new concept.  I love the idea of sprucing it up a bit and putting it in a pretty package.

I love having the ingredients to make cookies during the holiday season right on hand.  You never know when you will need to whip up some homemade goodies at the last minute with all of the parties and events…so these make for a practical gift too.

I quickly sewed together some homemade cookie mix bags out of a canvas paint drop cloth.  I will share that tutorial here soon.  To see some other projects I have used a drop cloth for check these out!

Then I hand-stamped a wooden spoon with the word JOY!  To see how I did that you can read the tutorial here:

    What kind of paint did you use to paint the handles? I’ve tried this before, using craft paint, and it was not dishwasher safe… Did you find something that is?

      Great question. I used house paint. I just got some sample sizes in the two colors. It stays on in the dishwasher…but I always wash my wooden spoons by hand. Either way…it should hold up in the dishwasher.

    I love this whole thing Amy- so cute!

    As usual, this idea is adorable. Just wanted you to know that I purchased the stamp set from Harbor Freight and stamped the spoons for Thanksgiving. It was a little harder than I thought and I did make a few mistakes on some of the spoons but not enough to keep me from making the adorable “JOY” spoon for Christmas gifts. Thank you!!

    How did you paint the cute handles??

    Hi Amy! Question. I don’t have a stamp set and was wondering if you need to use the same jewelry hammer thing to stamp these into the wooden spoons? Thanks and I cannot wait to make these!!
